The following platform was adopted
by tbe convention! . h
We, the representatives of tbe Dem
ocratic, Peoples and Silver-Republican
isirties of the state of Washington, as
sembled in, joint convention this 29th
day of August, 100, rosiwctlvoly re
allirm our faith in tbe principle
enunciated by our resiwctive national
conventions; and we pledgeour earnest
support to the peerless representative
of the people, William Jennings Bryan
s'nd Adlat K. Stevenson.
We still bel love in the Declaration
of Independence, and therefore hold it
aloft in preference to the impeiialistia
folicy of tho Republican parly.
We oppose trusts aud combinations
which corner the products of industry
and levy tribute on the people.
We denounce these twin relic of
barbarism imperialism and militar
ism whether in the form of trust at
home or greed of conquest abroad.
We pledge onr repursoutative in
congress to work for the passage of a
measure providing payment for tbe time
consumed by our state volunteers in
the late war with Spain.
We favor just and liberal pensions
to the true and faithful soldiers of the
United States, including tbe gallant
Indian war veterans. " '
We demand such legislation as will
insure to the farmer and producers ol
the state of Washington a reduction of
freight rate and fares to a just basis,
We demand the inauguration ol
such measures as shall give tbe people
the right to express themselves, when
they so elect, upon all important ques
tions, by the system known as direct
legislation. . - ' '
We commend the official conduct of
all pur stato Officers, and call attention
to the contrast between the present ex
cellent financial condition of tbe state
and the blight and ruin prophesied by
the opposition to surely result from the
election of our state olllcers.
We commend tho wise, courageous
and patriotic manner in which the Hon.
George Turner, our' representative in
the United States senate, has defended
the honor of his country "and fulfilled
his duty to the people of tho state of
Washington. .

Honolulu, Sept. 6. The stirring
event of the past week have resulted
iu a movement to increase the military
strength ol the Hawaiian islands, aud
arrautieiueuU ar being made to add to
the force now here. '
It la thought, In tbe event ol wine
sudlcn warlike movements, Hawaii
might bave to defend herself for a time,
as tint United State ha to far done
little to make the islands safe from iova
ion. It is proposed to have a full regi
iout of troops bote. There are plenty
f men sun eight companies are uow
iu existence. The uieu of the old citi
zens' guard will make up two more and
there are pleuty of meu available to
complete tbe regiment. Tbe principal
difficulty at present is a lack of ma
terial, There are not enough guns on
tbe islands;
It is found that nnder the new condi
tions of American government, Hono
lulu is a very heavy exporter of gold to;
the United States, and local financier
are thinking of mean to stop such
shipments. The exportation are due
to the custom-house collection, llouo.
lulu baa no money except what oomet
from the mainland and the heavy
drain, it it thought, will have bad af
fects upon the local money market.
F.ffoit are being made to take advan
tage of a United States law which al
lows for the depositing with assistant
tieasurers of money for duties to be
collected, in such cases vouchers for
the cash to be taken by the collect'"
here instead of money, As the ca'-
deposit at Sau Francisco would be kepi
up bv sngar buyers there, this would
put an end to heavy go d exportation
from Hawaii by tbe customs depart
ment. It would also result in saving
a considerable turn of money now being
laid for cunstant importations of gold,
only to bave the gold sent back to the
coast. ," , " . . ,
